Consolidated Container Company (CCC) recently placed an order for three L42 4-cavity and one L32 3-cavity PET stretch-blow machines with Amsler Equipment Inc. in Richmond Hill, ON, Canada.  These convertible series machines are being installed in two different facilities.

The new all-electric Amsler linear L32 and L42 machines are convertible because the number of cavities is adjustable.  The L42 machines can be run in 4-cavity mode to make bottles up to 2 liters or in 2-cavity mode for larger bottles up to 5 liters. The L32 machine can be run in 3-cavity mode to make bottles up to 2 liters, 2-cavity mode for bottles up to 3 liters and single-cavity mode for bottles up to 5 liters.

The Amsler machines are all-electric with servo-actuated stretch rods, clamp, and preform in-feed to the molds.  At CCC’s request, the machines were equipped with Siemens user interfaces and controls systems.  The machines will be used to produce a variety of containers, including beverage, trigger sprayer and floor cleaner, among others.

According to Werner Amsler, President, “The order placed by CCC with us is a milestone in our history as it represents the largest single order we have ever received. We are committed to working closely with CCC in supplying state-of-the-art machines to support their growth in manufacturing PET containers.”

Rob Johnson, General Manager of Consumer Business unit of CCC, said  “W. Amsler Equipment Inc. has been a critical partner to support the needs of the key customers of the CCC’s Consumer Business Unit. They have worked closely with CCC’s engineering group to deliver technology that fit the needs of our growing PET platform and our Commercial Services group, which is committed to providing CCC’s customers with the fastest possible speed to market in the packaging industry.”
